Is wearing Speed Braces for 24 months common?

I recently received a consult from an orthodontist and he suggested that I wear braces for the top and bottom. His office will use the Speed Braces and said the entire process of wearing the braces will take 24 months. I have an impacted canine that is partially exposed and some spaces in my teeth and my bite isn't aligned properly.

That sounds like a long time. There is nothing speedy about two years of orthodontic treatment. Most of our patients wear braces (Fastbraces) for less than a year. 

Good luck!
